I ride an A-Frame..wich is set back 2cm and rides pretty surfy. I set it back even more only on really deep powder, to have more float...Do the same thing on firm snow/hardpack and your tail will wash out every turn. For carving I suggerst you try the standard settings, and leave some tail to push you out of the turns.
ALso steeper positive angles will help your carving (I see yours are pretty shallow in the pic) (like +15 / + 12) I ride 21-18 for carving 15-9 for pow
